any useful accessories, care kits, etc?
I'm in the exact same boat. I am "in production". Here's what I've done:

* Ordered a new Valentine One. My current one has lived thru two 550's, so I figure it's time for the latest version. I always hard-wire them, so I want to have it ready to go.

* Ordered a new EZTag for our toll roads. I realize this is geocentric to me, but you may have something similar in your area. Houston EZTags stick to your windshield and can't be reused, so I want to have that ready also.

I'm waiting on mats, to see what comes in the car. I'll have it lightly tinted at the dealer.

Great idea about the manual. Thanks! I'm on my way to dl it now.

Great thread! Waiting is a b*tch...
